Born in Alto Alegre do Pindaré in Maranhão, Sydney is a self-taught artist who has worked with realistic drawing for many years. He is keen on learning new techniques, especially after an accident five years ago that left him on a wheelchair.
In his panel Racismo é burrice (Racism is Stupid) shown here, the artist uses a combination of graffiti and painting techniques which he had not been very familiar with. For this reason, he was inspired to seek more knowledge about them. The motif of racism, which he feels strongly about, permeates his art
